    My sincere condolences on Jim Newman’s passing. I had the pleasure of anchoring the Nation’s first Financial TV Channel in Los Angeles; and Jim was my news guy and often interviewed me about the markets and economy. Although not mentioned in this obituary; KWHY-Channel 22 was the first in 1969; and Jim was also on KFWB radio (we were both on KTLA at times). We lost touch as I moved to the East Coast, CNBC and now internet analysis. I feel like the last survivor of the early days; and hearing of Jim’s passing is a reminder of the transition of business journalism. He was a fine and respected colleague. RIP.
